Help:IPA/Nguni

The charts below show the way in which the IPA is used to transcribe the Nguni languages Swazi, Xhosa, and Zulu. For a guide to adding IPA characters to popflock.com resource articles, see {{IPA-ss}}, {{IPA-xh}}, {{IPA-zu}} and popflock.com Resource: Manual of Style/Pronunciation § Entering IPA characters.

A superscript X marks a sound or spelling found specifically in Xhosa, and Z specifically in Zulu. Sounds marked * only appear in loanwords.
